Facebook Inc. will block a handful of political ads from President Donald Trump’s campaign for violating the company’s rules around voting misinformation by suggesting it’s time to go to the polls.

The ads, which were uploaded Monday to the social-media service, include messages like “Vote Today” and “Election day is today.” Facebook’s election policies ban ads that include misleading information about when and where you can vote. Election Day is Nov. 3.
